Instant Karma


While working on my massive digital photo project (sorting/editing/deleting the 1000’s of images on our computer) I heard a huge crash, the sound of a cat bowl falling and some serious scampering. The big one had managed to tip over his waterbowl. Water everywhere. Curses! Detered from my project. I cleaned up, and opted to not put the bowls back – just so they wouldn’t try it again while I was working. My loving spouse arrived home minutes after…

My Loving Partner: Why don’t the cats have food?

Distracted Me: He spilled water everywhere…

MLP: So you didn’t replace it?

DM: No I…. mm… was busy with…water spilled…. opted not…. busy…. (This is what happens when too many threads are running through my mind at the same time – my tongue can’t translate.)

MLP: So you’re punishing them both?

DM: Not punishing them…. busy… umm…. well… (still can’t translate)

MLP: You oughta be reported for being a bad…


DM exits computer room to see what noise was.

MLP stands there with look of amazement on his face – books call that dumb-founded, but I think that’s too close to dumb.

There is kibble spattered across entire kitchen and onto the living room carpet.

Both cats are watching with just a smidge of interest. DM knows instinctively that the little criminals are recording the whole thing for future replay over catnip.


Karma’s a bitch.
